Hello,

I am working on a file with high repetitivity and as units are inserted from TM, I see that the font changes from the source (i.e., Times New Roman in source --> Arial in target or Bold in target, different colour etc.). Do you know if there is some setting I can do to prevent this from happening? I work in TagEditor 2007 and only .ttx files are available.

Many thanks,
Eleni

What you see is NOT what you get.

The actual font, size, color of the final exported target text are determined by tags. As long as you make sure that all the tags from the source occur in the right place in the target, you have nothing to worry about. It doesn't matter if your text shows up in bold and green on your screen, it will look just fine in the final output. It's all in the tags.

Hello Heike,

Thank you for your answer. Actually, I panicked when I noticed that, because it is a very long file and I won't have the time to "fix" all the messed-up fonts. It's good to know that it won't be necessary.

Best regards,
E.
